Are people allowed to dispose of yard clippings in wetlands?

No, these natural areas should not be disturbed and dumping yard clippings is a violation of BGMC 18.280. Any disturbed wetland areas should be brought back to their natural condition and reseeded with native wetland plants. Any ongoing activity in a wetland area will result in code enforcement action and potential fines. For further information please, contact Sam Crummett, Planning Supervisor, at 360-342-5042.
